Late runs power Tri-West girls and Danville boys

DANVILLE — Double-digit scoring streaks delivered victories for the Tri-West girls’ basketball team and the Danville boys Friday night.

In the girls’ game, Marisa Meyer had a three-point play with 14.9 seconds remaining to put Tri-West ahead, as the Bruins outscored Danville by 15 in the fourth quarter for a 47-42 victory.

“Our defense was pretty good all game, then we went to man-to-man in the fourth quarter, and they really did a good job,” Tri-West coach Brad Acton said. “We battled and had the mindset in the last five minutes that we were going to win this game.”

In the nightcap, Danville’s boys went on a 14-0 run to blow open a tight game with the rival Bruins en route to a 68-56 triumph.

“These guys have been buying in since the summer,” said Danville coach Brian Barber, whose Warriors improved to 13-3. “We’re real happy with our guys. They don’t care who gets the credit, they just want to represent their school and community together.”

Danville (11-8) led the girls’ game by eight at halftime and by 10 entering the fourth quarter, but Tri-West (11-6) scored the first 12 points of the final period to take the lead. A basket by Danville’s Hannah Newby tied it at 42-42 with 30 seconds left, and that set up Meyer’s three-point play, which was followed by two clinching free throws by Karen Jones.

Meyer’s go-ahead basket was in the middle of the paint, in heavy traffic.

“She’s a small forward, and for her size, she just got in there and battled for it,” Acton said.

Madison Sprecher led Tri-West with 14 points, followed by Meyer with 11. Jones had a double-double, with 10 points and 16 rebounds.

Nicki Kiefer paced Danville with 14 points, while Morgan Bear finished with 10 points and nine rebounds off the bench.

In the boys’ contest, a 9-0 Tri-West run put the Bruins up 22-14 in the second quarter. Despite not scoring its first two-point basket until midway through the second period, Danville came back with a matching nine-point streak to go up by one before Jerriontai Ragsdale’s lay-in just before the buzzer put Tri-West up 24-23 at the break.

Tri-West (7-4) led by as many as six in the third quarter, but nine points by Austin Anderson and seven Tri-West turnovers helped Danville pull to within 42-41 heading to the fourth.

A technical foul on Tri-West coach Adam Bontreger occurred with the Bruins trailing 49-46. The subsequent free throws were part of Danville’s game-winning rally, and a 20-2 disparity at the foul line.

“The technical foul cost us the game tonight,” Bontreger said. “I will wear this loss, and the whole Tri-West community can know that. I was frustrated at the foul discrepancy. It was a big difference. Everybody saw it.”

Anderson (15 points), DJ Shipley (14), Luke Callahan (12) and Ryan Cloncs (10) all scored in double figures for Danville.

Trevor Waite led Tri-West with 17 points, followed by Ragsdale and Nick Sprecher with 10 apiece.
